Day 1:
Beach Body Challenge has commenced!

I PASSED!! I PASSED!!! I PASSED!!!

After a TON of stress and anxiety going into the final few weeks of studying for my final exam, I officially passed my Personal straining certification :-)

Now I am officially excited and ready to continue learning even more! Next up? Health Coaching.

My new years resolution….to get back to blogging more!

16 steps to improve your body image


  • 1. Remove unhealthy conditioning. Get rid of fashion magazines, change the channel during commercial breaks, etc.
  • 2. Replace with healthy conditioning. Hang pictures of beautiful women with diverse body types, follow body positive blogs, etc.
  • 3. GET NAKED. Spend some time getting comfortable with your body.
  • 4. Don't be so critical of others. This only breeds criticism in ourselves. Accept others, accept yourself.
  • 5. Don't allow yourself to think negative thoughts. Pretend you love yourself, and eventually you will.
  • 6. Accept compliments. Learn to just say, "Thank you," rather than brushing them off.
  • 7. Compliment yourself. purposefully list the things that you like about yourself.
  • 8. TAKE LOTS OF SELFIES, UNTIL YOU LOVE THEM ALL.
  • 9. Wear the clothes that make you feel beautiful. Regardless of what others think.
  • 10. Do your hair and makeup the way that YOU like.
  • 11. Spend some time alone doing the things that you like to do.
  • 12. Treat yourself to something nice.
  • 13. Wear sexy underwear even if no one else will see them.
  • 14. Surround yourself with people who build you up.
  • 15. Confront the people who tear you down, and cut them out of your life.
  • 16. Always ask yourself "Why do I feel this way? Who says this isn't beautiful?"

Today’s school session took me into the gym. Working on my first assignment now….creating a full workout routine with warm up and stretch.

The Blogilates Fit Journal is finally available to purchase here!!! It comes with an exclusive 12-week meal plan (with vegan alternatives!) that Cassey developed with nutritionists from weighttraining.com. The meal plan alone is a $99 value, so at $30 the journal is a steal! :D

Learn more about this in Cassey’s latest video

The journal has been available for only a few hours but it’s been very well-received, it’s crazy!! So to thank everyone, I’m giving away 3 journals to three lucky bloggers! Get a chance to win a copy by reblogging this post! I don’t want to coerce anyone into following me so that won’t be required, just reblog this post. 1 reblog = 1 entry. Likes don’t count! You can reblog as many times as you want, but try not to annoy your followers too much! Haha.

I’ll pick the winners using a random number generator on Sunday, Nov. 17. Of course, you have to be willing to give me your full name, email, and mailing address if you win! Good luck!!! :D

I’m having a day. I’m having a day that is testing my patience. I’m having a day that is testing my willpower. I’m just having a day! Is it Tuesday yet?

New workout program this week. And wow, has my game just been upped! I am wiped, and starving!! Loving it, but hungry :-)

Haha, I thought I was doing so well….felt like its been longer than November 1st since cakes, candies, wine…..checked my “days since app”. The only one that has been longer than Friday was wine…..12 days! What is up with that?? I forgot the first few weeks of getting back on track feel like months.
Here’s to “NO”vember :-)

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated anything, so I thought I may as well return with a return to clean eating.
Along with getting my diet in check, I have also gotten back to running (and loving it again…..that will be another update) and am currently consistent with my strength routine. 
I am nearing completion of my school, next week will start the actual gym work portion, which I am really excited about. But that also means I am that much closer to writing my final exam, which I am extremely nervous about. BUT, it is all good and I am taking it day by day :-)
So much going on, I am going to have to do this in parts :-)

About Me


Brandi.

I guess every blog needs to start out with an introduction, so here's mine. I am a 34 year old CEO of domestic affairs (AKA: Stay at home Mom). I am celebrating my 9 year wedding anniversary with my husband who I have been with for 15 years and we have two gorgeous girls, a 4 year old and a 20 month old. I've decided that I need to push myself, get out there, try new things. And that's kind of where this Blog comes in. Part of my New Years Resolution this year was to start a blog. Make myself accountable for working out and trying new things, but also to give feedback on the things that I try. My goal is to try different forms of workouts, fitting different lifestyles and fitness levels, and giving my thoughts/feedback. Problem is, with most resolutions, they don't happen. With that in mind I have decided that it is no longer going to be a resolution, but instead I am going to share my passion with others.
